Mel's Gallery is a good starting point. I'm not a reefer, but there are some great pics and choices for you.

You are kind of asking an open ended question, so it is hard to give advice. I would check some out and then post with:
"I think I like these, will they work in my tank?"...kind of thing....

Sorry CK, Got tied up. I have very good success with mushrooms and polyps. These are excellent starting points. I have sold back to the LFS over 300.00 of mushrooms that I used to buy other corals. Colt coral, Brain coral and leathers after that. Just some good starters

They are basically pretty hardy corals. I do weekly 10-15% PWC`s. I dont target feed them as they get their feedings from the light and food scraps in the water column. I also feed my tank phytoplankton. Other than that I dont do anything else to my tank. Oh I also use Kent`s coral vite but I always under use. If it says use 3 caps I use 2 caps. This is the only chem that I add to my tank. IMO PWC`s provide all I need for all other supplements.

I have virtually the identical setup (29 gal with 130W of PC lighting). Right now I have mushrooms, green star polyps, some zoos, a toadstool leather, and candy cane. All of them seem to have done fairly well. The star polyps in particular have grown like mad. The mushrooms seemed to be nearly indestructible as they tolerated my clumsy handling.

what have u had alot of success with?
Success largely depends on providing the right husbandry for the right animal. Couple that with diligent maintanance and good water parameters and you have a lot of great options for corals. There are many softies and LPS corals that are very easy to care for and will thrive in most properly lite and well maintained tanks.
